-=AlexXF=- from the-ebook.org has made a new lrs->lrf convertor: lrsparser. lrsparser is a good replacement for lrs2lrf.exe (the interface to XYLogParser) because:
1. It is much more faster (up to 100 times)
2. The parts of lrf-books made with XYLogParser are often non-readable while lrsparser is free of this drawback.

These ones who wants to try the lrsparser can install it with BookDesigner as follows.

1. Download lrsparser.exe from
http://www.mailutilities.com/lrsparser.zip
2. Go to the subdirectory Tools/Librie of BookDesigner and rename lrs2lrf.exe as lrs2lrf.bak
3. Rename lrsparser.exe as lrs2lrf.exe and copy it to the Tools/Librie subdirectory.

P.S. These ones who wants to fix non-readable lrf's made by XYLogParser, can use fixLRF.exe utility. The utility has been written by obelix from the-ebook.org, who has discovered what is wrong in the XYLogParser output and found a way to fix it.

Hi. I installed your update and made a conversion. It worked well but still has the hard breack problem so it will not generate lrfs for the Sony E-reader that are scalable. After the first time, other attempts to generate books resulted in errors.

Necessity of hard breaks are inherited from the Librie; vvv (the author of Book Designer program) is going to change the format to scalable one by the end of January.
New LRSparser (by -=AlexXF=-) is the first ever “homemade” lrs to lrf parser which is much faster than XYLogParser.dll. It does not change format of the documents created by Book Designer.
I also had errors after first several runs of BD update on 2 my computers, but after second or third run it disappeared by itself.

it looks very promising this software.

I just had a play around, not really sure what i was doing other than loading up html files and immediately just trying to save out an lrf file.

Occasionally i had a problem where it said something about top level namespace (i'm trying to recreate it to be more specific but failing right now) .. in the lrs viewer that came up the beginning of the file was full of what look like absolutely loads of crosses characters (in the religious sense).. all the same.

Anyone seen this, have any idea what causes the problem? Next time i see it i'll post more thorough explanation of the error.

I had some files made that were only 2 pages long when looking at them on the reader (the reader itself, or the sony reader software) .. the new LRSParser seems to have fixed that.

I'm not completely sure what the problem is people are talking about with pagination.. I can try dabbling with the number of lines per page as described.. what am i looking for for it to be the correct value?

Should the width be left at 600? it looks very narrow in the PC sony reader software.

Other than that tho, it does look like it may be very useful.

Compiles almost anything - very nice. But doesn't output horisontal lines.
<RuledLine linelength="516" linetype="solid" linewidth="1" linecolor="0x00000000"/>
Lrs2Lrf does though.

Hi vvv, thanks for this great tool. I've installed it and I like it a lot.

I do have an problem with the numbers are just dots "." in the page number of the main window and in the "Make Sony Libre File". Is there a setting I need to change? Font I need to install? etc? I've attached screen shots of my problem. Thanks!

Check for the MS Sans Serif font installation.

Thank you, vvv, for your excellent program. I have used the previous version to convert PDF to DOC to convert it back to PDF via MS Word 2003. It still beats other programs for handling PDF files.

Do you have any plan to do the same thing for PDF files? I hope you can come up with a way to modify a PDF file and save it as a PDF file for use with the reader.

Thanks vvv, the ebooks created on this now look great on the Sony Reader. Is there any way to switch off the cover title/author page creation for an ebook?

To switch off the cover page: press "book cover page -> remove" in the "Make Sony Reader file" window.

There is no option to switch off the front page: the Reader heeds this info for the bookshell.

I'm having a problem with extended characters like é in my Baen RTF files. When I load the file, it replaces all my é with й. Then when I create the Sony Reader file, it removes the й character entirely, so I get blas instead of blasé, and r sum instead of résumé.
I tried replacing the cyrillic character with é, and that looks fine in Book Designer, but when I create the Sony Reader file, it then looks like
blas&#233; and r&#233;sum&#233;, which is even worse than before. Any suggestions?
